SPECIAL ADVERTISING CONTENT: A ski vacation at the Dover Bay Waterfront Community

| January 17, 2021 1:00 AM

Rental options at the Dover Bay Waterfront Community on Lake Pend Oreille can turn a weekend ski excursion into a luxury vacation.

Located about 15 minutes from Schweitzer Mountain, and just 3 miles from Sandpoint, the Dover Bay community provides a close-to-home resort experience in the heart of North Idaho’s quintessential landscapes.

Waterfront bungalows are available year-round and are an especially popular destination for those looking for a little winter relaxation once they’re off the slopes. There are multiple options to suit your style too, from cabin in the woods getaways to parkside and beachfront bungalows and condominiums. All offer proximity to a wintertime stroll along Lake Pend Oreille, and the Dover Bay community also touts 9 miles of walking and hiking trails.

Dover Bay’s Marina Village provides the premium resort amenities to visitors and residents of the community. It includes a year-round, outdoor heated swimming pool and spa, fitness center, seasonal recreation rentals, market and a full-service restaurant, The Dish, which is currently open for dinner on Wednesdays through Sundays.

The recently expanded Dover Bay Marina offers both seasonal and short-term moorage options, making Dover Bay a perfect boating destination in the warmer months.

Another vacation rental option is the Sandcreek Lofts at Sandpoint Marina, which is managed by the Dover Bay Resort. The Sandcreek Lofts offers Sandpoint dining and shopping options within walking distance.
